But life goes on, and one of the things that got me through the winter was crochet. After crocheting a pussyhat through my gritted teeth, I really did kind of go into hibernation, in an endless cycle of work, home, crochet, YouTube, TV, and work again. I started a lot of cool and sophisticated projects that I will share at another time, but for today I'd like to share some recent, quick and fun stashbusters that I've done!
It started about a month ago when my work BFF had a birthday and I got a serious flu bug. I'd been wanting to make her something for a while, but the time I would have spent making it was instead spent half-asleep and feeling like death, so I had to make something super quick. Enter the Spring Bean Cowl, which I actually saw someone else on Instagram making. It's a free pattern on Ravelry, super quick and easy and kind of addictive.
I made my first one in Cascade 220 Superwash for my friend:
